Del Mar, Horse racing

Del Mar selections for Friday, Nov. 6

FIRST RACE: 1. Optimism And Hope, 2. Riri, 3. Magnolias in Bloom. LONG SHOT: Brookys Star.

SECOND RACE: 1. Tatum’s Gold, 2. Zuzu’s Petals, 3. Really a Princess. LONG SHOT: CRock N Bunny.
THIRD RACE: 1. Aren Vaughn, 2. Silver Summer, 3. The Bench Rules. LONG SHOT: A New Trend.
FOURTH RACE: 1. #7 Roman Tizzy (4-1), 2. Tribal Jewel, 3. Storm Comin Thru. LONG SHOT: Avanti Bello.

This gelding has been popular at the claim box and trainer Vladimir Cerin is claiming this 6-year-old back. Cerin is 25% first off the claim and 29% with jockey Santiago Gonzalez at Del Mar.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Housemaker, 2. Traiteuse, 3. Revenue Virginius. LONG SHOT: Journeyonthemove.
SIXTH RACE: 1. #4 LUCKY REALITY (best bet) (2-1), 2. Xerxes, 3. Kronwall. LONG SHOT: Extra Lucky.

Our Eyes: Apprentice jockey David Lopez has come down from Northern California to ride and he jumps on a favorite here for trainer Steve Miyadi, who used Lopez to a 24% winning mark up north. Miyadi claimed this gelding last time out and he is 20% first time off the claim and 27% second time off a layoff.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Poshsky, 2. Husband’s Folly, 3. Hotizontalyspeakin. LONG SHOT: Atomic Rule.
EIGHTH RACE: 1. #1 Silver Score (9-2), 2. Makena, 3. Secret Chords. LONG SHOT: Miss Bliss.

Our Eyes: Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith has no reason to stick around on a Friday afternoon for the last race of the day for a small barn unless he’s live. This mare finished second at 40-1 during the summer meet and returns here with a big work.
